Biodiversity Management & Conservation
Portfolio Lead: Piers Dunstan
Marine biodiversity constitutes the assets that underpin many of the ecosystem services that communities and industry rely on. However, marine biodiversity is being impacted by many different pressures from different sectors that are singly and together reducing the goods and services that people derive from healthy marine ecosystems.
Our work on threatened, endangered and protected species represents a diverse portfolio, with strong links to researchers from Universities and other agencies.
In partnership with the NWSFTCP, we are working to develop adaptation pathways for turtle management over the next decade and beyond
